This is rich. The Republicans really are in a battle with each other. When was the last time you saw a Republican member of Congress criticize the Bush team for anything? The funny thing is that it was actually Congressman Peter Hoekstra who demanded that the White House release the sensitive data from Iraq according to the conservative Weekly Standard. Now, Hoekstra is blaming Bush for doing it:
House Intelligence Chairman Peter Hoekstra criticized the Bush administration on Sunday for its handling of a trove of once-secret documents from Saddam Hussein's covert nuclear program disclosed on a federal Web site.They screwed up all right. Of course, Hoekstra was one of the Republicans on the Hill who demanded that the White House release the documents. It's fratricide time.
Hoekstra, R-Mich., complained the U.S. intelligence community hadn't properly declassified the documents.
"Well, you know, we have a process in place. It looks like they screwed up," he said on CNN's "Late Edition."
